Hello Workaways!, we are a young family of five- myself, partner, our two daughters and dog Lelo. I am English and my partner is Irish. We are a super laid back family, always joking around and never take anything too serious. Our dog Lelo is a tiny chihuahua who is super friendly and loves nothing more than to be cuddled. Our eldest daughter Alba has just celebrated her 2nd birthday and is the best child ever! She loves to be outside rain or shine and adores our neighbours ‘ the moo moos’. Our newest arrival is coming up to 6 months old- she’s full of giggles and smiles but loves her mummy to much to go to anyone else( she’s glued to me!).
We live on the Lough Corrib which is a stunning lake that flows right through Galway. The views are stunning, especially at night when the sun sets. If you like peace and quiet then you will love it here!! Every morning we wake up to the birds singing and the sound of the rain ( it always rains in Ireland haha). I am currently Childminding from home so I can be with my babies for as long as possible before they head off to school and forget all about me ( sobbing), so we are a very noisy, busy household at the moment.
As much as we love where we live, it is very hard to keep up with maintaining the land (nature is very much "the boss"). We also have odd projects in and around the house that we would like to pursue but could use a little help. My main focus right now is Alba as she is adjusting to having a baby sister so we would love someone super fun and silly to give Alba the attention that I am unable to give her right now. We are a very relaxed, down to earth family and have no problem going above and beyond for someone who does a good job helping us out :)

Here you can experience life in rural Ireland (although not completely rural), only 25 minutes away from Galway city and on route to Connemara. We are surrounded by beauty and history with Aughnanure Castle only 15 minutes walk away and Connemara/clifden just over an hour away. You can gain experience of Irish farming if interested.

Your main role will be to take care of Alba our 2 year old. We want you to have as much fun and games with her as possible but you would also need to take care of the not so fun parts such as cleaning up after her, preparing her snacks/lunch and continuing her toilet training that she is already so good at. There will be times when I ask you to take care of both girls but it won’t be very often as my youngest isn’t great going to anyone else but me(lucky for you!). We expect help with all general household duties inside and outside and not just during your working hours, everybody has to chip in with keeping the house clean and tidy. We have a stove that provides hot water and heat so throwing a log on the fire every now and then is a must if you want to shower.
